The speed would vary so the lamps cannot be used until the water wheels have been equipped with governors. This win be done within a short time.

In fifty-two of these there was a conviction or a plea of guilty, in two a verdict of not guilty, and one, the Oilman case, discharged on trHl, at the request of respondent's attorney.

Humphrey Campbell has received a let ter from Arthur, hi son, who is a member of Company G, Twenty-sixth regiment United States Volunteers, now in service in the Philipniues. The letter was written from Panav island on Thanksgiving day. Mr. Campbell had just closed a twenty-one ps' march In which loo miles had been covered. In its progress hundreds of rivers were forded and tbe troops oftentimes wading hip deep through mud, the stench from wulcu was revolting, tie said tbe beat from the sun was something .terrific and when the men arrived in camp their feet were so sore they could hardly bear their weight upon them. His company had at the time of writing only lost one man, and that by fever, since It bad been there, a period of over a year, during which It has seen much service on the firing line. In a recent three hours' fight with tbe insurgents Mr. Campbell was wounded In one arm from a bullet which cut a furrow some six Inches in depth. When be wrote the wound was healing rap'dl 1. He is of tbe opinion that the fighting on a large scale is nearly over, as the Filipinos are scattered in little bands and are hard to catch, they being too quick for the American Boldiers. He said when our troops entered a Filipino town it was laughable to see the white flags rushed out of tbe windows of tbe houses, everything being used for a piace emblem from a while rag to a shirt or pair ot white pants. Iu speaking ot tbe endurance ot the Filipinos, he said at the present time there was one confined in tbe regimental hospital who, before being captured, sustained seven bullet wounds, two bayonet tbruBts, and finally a rifle was broken over his head. Notwithstanding all these wounds the Filipino was getting along finely. Mr. Campbell said the menu for his Thanksgiving dinner was made np ot six slices of bacon, five pieces of hard tack and a enp of coffee. He expresses the hope of eating his next Thanksgiving dinner with his parents in Montpelier. He said tbe local drink there is oalled tuba and is made from the milk of the coooanut. It re-requires but little of it to Intoxicate a man. The ooooanut is very plenty and the soldiers use them freely as the milk Is especially adapatable for quenching thirst caused by the intense heat of that tropical olimate. FIRE AT RUTLAND. The Exchange block on Merchants Row, Rutland, waB gutted by fire at six o'clock Sunday morning. The first alarm was inadequate but a second brought out the orowd. The fire had been burning for some time when the firemen arrived. It caught on tbe top floor and worked np through the cupola before it was dsioovered. The wind blew almost a gale from the north and the wooden building on tbe south in which Vallquette s shoe store and Parish's Jewelry store were saved with the greatest dif ficulty. Tbe fire did not get below the ton floor, but the stores on the first floor were flooded. The total loss is 926,000; insur ance, vzi,uuu, CANNOT ENFORCE MILEAGE LAW. Gov, Smith arrived in Ibe city Tuesday to meet D. J. Foster, Alfred E. Watson and John D. Miller, ot the State rill-road commission, and Lleut.-Gov. II. C, Bates aud F. L. Fish, to consider with them tue advisability of proceeding further In the mileage book oases now in the United Slates Clroutt Court, and which were to come up at a session of this court to be held Iu Burlington February 27. Lieut..Gov. Bates and F, L. Fish were the attorneys appointed by Governor Smith to defend the oases brought against the State railroad commissioners and the State's attorneys in the several comities through which the railroads ot the State pass to prevent them from enforcing the mileage law passed by the legislature ot 18J8. The history ot the attempt to enforoe the law may have been forgotten. Shortly after the adjournment of the Legislature ot 1898 the State Railroad Commission took steps to oompnl the Sr. Johnsbury and Lake Champlaln railroad to comply with tbe provisions ot the law and place on sale a mileage book good to bearer at the rate of two oents per mile. An order was issued for the company to oomply with the law on or before the 10 h of January, 1890, Before that time certain of tbe bondholders of the road brought a bill in equity, asking that a temporary injunction be granted forbidding the commission and the State's attorneys ot the counties through which the road passed, who were also charged with tbe enforcement ot the law to act, and also forbidding the company to comply with the order of the commission. This temporary Injunction was granted by Judge W heeler, shortly after the same steps were taken with the Rutland railroad, which adopted a Blmilar plan of de fence. Lieut.-Gov. Bates and State's Attorney Fish, who had beeu commissioned by the governor, pushed the matter forward until a decision was reached by tbe United States court. In tbe case the court held In effect, that the State could not compel a railroad to sell mileage books at a rate per mile less than that at which they were compelled to sell local tickets and that such a course meant that a man with $20 could buy mileage and tiavel at a less rate than tbe man who only purchased 82 worth of transportation. In other words it was held that if the State attempted to fix a maximum tariff for passengers per mile it must also jiake the tariff uniform, If Judge Wheeler holds in the coming ses slon of the circuit court that the decision of the court is in point, nothing further can be done to enforce tbe law and the permanent injunction will probably he ordered to prohibit the enforcement of tbe law. All the parties were present at tbe meeting held this afternoon, and, after consultation on the various aspects of the question, it was the nnanimous opinion that the decision in the Michigan case, handed down in tbe United States Supreme court last summer, was controlling in these cases, and therefore the mileage book law could not be enforced, and that it would be useless to put the State to further expense in attempting to enforce it, so the cases will be pushed no further. SUPREME COURT. The January term of Supreme Court opened this morning with all the judges present. Prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. Norman Seaver. Among tbe prominent attorneys present outside of Washington county were H. 8. Peck. Max L. Powell, J. E. Cushman, D. J. Foster and R. E. Brown of Burlington ; A. A.Hall, Willard Farrington, C. W. Witters, Felix McGettrick and Emmet Mc-Feetersof St. Albans; Elisba May, Harry Blodgett, H. C. Bates and Alexander Dun-nettof St. Johnsbury; George B. Young, John Young of Newport; H. K.

Wilds, F. H, Button and W. H. Button of Middlebury; Kittredge Haskins of Brattleboro; J, C. Enright of Windsor. The docket was called and a large number of cases were set for hearing. The first case considered was Rutland-Canadian Railroad against the Central Vermont. A confirmation of the award of the commissioners in the Burlington crossing case was urged by C. M. Wilds for the Central Vermont and opposed by Button & Button for the Rutland-Canadian. State against Charles 8. Waite, from Windsor county. Opinion by Judge Watson. Respondent was convicted of eleven offences of selling cider in the town of Weston. Judgment that respondent takes nothing by his exceptions. J. C. Enright appeared for the respondent. William H. Wllley against Boston and Maine railroad, from Orleans county. Judgment reversed and cause remanded. No opinion on the matter of contributory negligence. Opinion by Judge Munson. Reuben Clark, administrator, against S. C. Smith and C. M. Hays, receivers, from Bennington county, was the first case ar gued. F. C. Archibald, O. M. Barber and O. H. Darling for plaintiff; C. W. Witters, J. K, Batchelder and H. O. Bates for de fendant. This case will probably occupy tbe time ot the court today. When court came in this afternoon Charles S. Waite of Weston was brought in for sentence. When asked if be had anything to say why the sentence of the law should not be passed upon him he replied that before be went into the cider selling business he took counsel from as good a lawyer as there is in tbe. state, and was ad vised that such selling was not illegal. He was sentenced by Judge Watson to pay a fine of $150 and costs, with the alternative sentence. He sottled. The following Washington county cases are set for hearing: Joseph Yatter v.

To acoept for a governing influence, Idle speculations as to what might happen, or the too common "if" of interests avowedly iimnip-ulutive, and the only ammunition of the hears iu cotton this season, against faots aud all information of an authoritative character, is the essence of folly; skepticism can not go Land in baud with faith. Truth is what is wanted on our side, though many show a disposition caring not to he on the side of truth; investigation, careful study of figures at hand and comparisons with former years and past sur rounding conditions, lead to one conclusion only, that nothing less than a niiiucle can pre vent our staple from realizing in its price every legitimate factor having a bearing on this market. Query as to what cotton is actually worth, wei;liing carefully extraneous conditions, convinces us that a cent a pound above the present level is fully justified aud a much higher price than eight and one-half cents is a probability before the later months of the current cotton year, doubtles before a icoming May. Too many get over anxious for events that, though delayed, none the less surely will soon be history and such history as the most ardent bull on cotton to-day will most pleasantly refer to. Theories are all right in their place but in the matter-of-fact commodity markets of this world, their claim is pre-empted; neither do they add a bale of cotton to this season's production or assist in rendering the position of the foreign spinner any more enviable. A world's visible under previous yean and daily growing less, Liverpool stocks the smallest for years and daily growing less, port stocks diminishing and exports increasing, the daily movement of this crop, and every fact obtainable is exceedingly bullish and cannot be ignored.
